I think my battery lasts a couple days or more, I don't really keep track but it's not too short.When I go to connect the ipod to my computer it pops up as removable disk, I cant get itunes to recognize it and when I go to rockboxon the root menu it says it doesn't have a .rockbox file, but when I go to connect to my computer it says I need to reformat the hard drive.I have windows 7 and it doesn't offer me a fat32 option only NTFS and exFat. If I can get past this part then I'm golden but I can't get to the root file on the iPod.
Happy Oktober!

classic boot issues

Didnt know that thanks, I'm going to try and drop the .rockbox in
the umsboot and see if that solves the problem. When I
select "rockbox" in the root menu it says it's missing the .rockbox
files. Maybe since it took to the index'd files I can try to boot with
.ubi like the instructions say now. At work atm, will check immediatley
afterwards.
 
Thanks again for the help everyone, happy
Oktober!

> if you're using windows it must be fat32...otherwise probably exfat...
 
Rockbox doesn't support exfat, just fat32. If it doesn't mount on
Windows after reformatting through the emCORE tools menu I'd suspect
your hard drive has some physical damage.
